The Giant's House and Mosaic Garden
Step inside the creative and whimsical world of artist Josie Martin, whose home and garden are open to the public as well as to B&B guests. The grand house dates back to 1880 and is embellished with the artist's colorful surprises inside and out, from a conservatory with mosaic "carpeted" floor to a grand piano used as a planter. The house and gallery are open daily for tours, and the Artist's Palate Café opens in summer months.
